A 44-year-old woman with chronic abdominal pain and weight loss is presented. 1 year after onset of symptoms and following multiple diagnostic procedures, angiography revealed high grade stenosis of the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries at their origins. Bypass grafts of Goretex were implanted from the infrarenal aorta to both arteries beyond the narrowed segments. 1 year after surgery the patient has regained her weight and is feeling well.
